Winslow Homer: Society and Solitude

A new, feature-length documentary film on the great American artist

WHEN: Friday, April 25, 7:00 pm
WHERE: Texas A&M Corpus Christi, Bay Hall Room 104

With Filmmaker Steven John Ross

Winslow Homer is recognized as perhaps the greatest American painter of his time. The film chronicles Homer’s artistic evolution, while also telling the story of a man who in his youth lived in the midst of a lively and cosmopolitan New York City art scene, but who gradually withdrew from public life. In his mid-forties he left America and lived alone in a small English fishing village for well over a year. When he returned he built a studio residence on a cliff overlooking the ocean in Maine, and lived there for the rest of his life. By the time of his death in 1910, he was mythologized as the great recluse of American art.
